Looking at the larger land market as we roll into Q2, it appears as though the robust stock market has retained a significant amount of the discretionary dollars which may have otherwise been in the land market. As summer approaches, we are optimistic in regards to the real estate market, but cautious until we see some verifiable sales data with some of the larger rural land offerings. Pricing continues to be the key factor for the buyers and buyers representatives with whom we are routinely communicating with. Farms and ranches priced out of the market continue to remain stagnant with little interest.
